Planning pregnancy, need guidance on semen analysis.

Hi, We did semen analysis for my husband first and below is the results :

70% Morphology,volume 2ml, ph 8.0, total sperm count is 55 million/ejaculate, sperm count is 30million/ml, 10% Active, 25 % slowly progressive, 20 % non progressive motile, High viscosity and >2 hour liquification, pus cell 2-3/hpf and they said asthenospermia with high visocity

we meet doctor and they gave tablets for infections if any for 1 month, Paternia XT Tablest & Multiminerals tables for last three months

After medication we took the sample today and below are the results

65% Morphology,volume 2ml, ph 8.0, total sperm count is 84 million/ejaculate, sperm count is 42million/ml, 10% Active, 20 % slowly progressive, 10 % non progressive motile, High viscosity and >1 hour liquification, pus cell 2-3/hpf and they said asthenospermia with high visocity

Can you tell us if this semen is good for getting pregnancy? and Why still we have high viscosity and greater liquification time after taking tabs?

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    The treatment is best considered "experimental" and can be tried as a therapeutic trial. The sad fact of the matter is that there is no method of increasing low sperm motility today! This is why modern management of a low sperm count and decreased sperm motility uses assisted reproductive technology extensively. The modern protocol for managing male infertility is based on the man's motile sperm count; and on a simple test, called a sperm survival test. The sperm are washed, and their recovery assessed; the washed sperm are then kept in culture medium in the incubator for 24 hours and then rechecked. If there are more than 3 million motile sperm per ml, this is reassuring. In your case its not complete asthenospermia , so good chances for pregnancy to happen are there.
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
